« on: February 15, 2016, 07:37:11 am »
My question is so basic,  if i want to use gps on revo board  how can i connect my futaba  sbus receiver  because you know that flex port does not support sbus and v9 gps  need both of  them ports (flex and main) if i choosen to use sbus i cant use gps v9  and this is the reverse situation? How can i solve this problem?

Hi,

OPGPSv9 do not need two ports. GPS and mag data comes from the same serial connection.

Connect Sbus to MainPort and GPSv9 to flexiPort
This scenario is also supported by wizard.

If you don't have OP GPSv9 and you want to have Mag+GPS using one port then you need next branch has support for DJI Naza compatible GPSs.
If you don't want to compile/build next branch, and still want to use Flexi for I2C Mag for example, then you can use something else instead of Sbus, as PPM is also supported on receiver port at the same time with telemetry.

At least on Sparky2 I use main-port for GPS... it has a bit more ports/connection possibilities.
